The most recent addition to Bova Lab's gear arsenal. I got this 60+ year old Canadian made tube console from a friend who's album I mastered early this year. I was truly astounded at how good his pre-mastered tracks sounded. He recorded it using the direct outputs of the mic preamps. This console has that sound of old tube era recordings. Although it's only a mono console (stereo hadn't been invented yet) summing tracks through it has more depth than pretty much anything else I've ever used. Can't wait to do an all tube four track mono recording with this thing. Looking under the hood reveals a plethora of tubes and the biggest audio transformers I've ever seen, each one almost the size of a Rubik's Cube. Beautifully built!
Here's a link to the same model of console preserved at the SPARC museum:
